We also offer a super long-lasting “aggregate/polymer” finishes. Swink’s Creations can guide you through the decision process and help you make an educated choice.

Tile & Coping

Your choice of tile and coping will add a nice accent to your choice of interior pool finish and decking materials. Most pools have tile installed around the waterline. It is usually made of ceramic or glass, but natural stone tiles are also popular. Sizes usually range from 1” squares to 6” squares.

Modern pool designs are making use of cantilever and natural stone coping which come in many colors and textures. Style, cost, and maintenance are all items to consider when deciding on your pool coping. Swink’s Creations can guide you through the decision process and help you make an educated choice.

Decking Choices

The Deck will have the greatest impact on the look of your pool. Natural stone is always a beautiful and timeless option. Your choices will most likely fall into one of these four categories:

  • Broom-finished concrete – simple, economical and long-lasting.
  • Exposed aggregate -- classier than Broom finish, and equally long-lasting.
  • Masonry finishes, such as flagstone or cut limestone.
  • Elegant pavers, such as tumbled marble travertine or other specialty pavers.
  • We prefer Travertine decking because of its benefits over other deck materials. They give a seamless, natural look, temperature control, comes in variety of colors, stain-resistant, fade-resistant, crack-resistant, and mold-resistant, and best of all it is easy to repair.
